Piano Concert

Life is just cruising by right now at a very fast pace. My consulting work is starting to interfere with my real job too so I'm going to have to make a decision here soon as well. I'm really enjoying my work at Hi-Z and what I'd really like to do is just focus on them and help make them succeed. Yesterday I started getting stuffed up again and boy is that really ticking me off. I've always been really healthy and maybe I'd get a case of the flu once a year but no more than that. This is the third time since Christmas I've gotten sick. Today i decided that I'm just going to take it easy and try and beat this thing before it hits me too hard.

So what did I do this week? Monday I made a trip to the scout office to submit the last of Alex's badges and to double check he has met all the requirements for his eagle. It is a good thing I did too because they didn't have his swimming badge recorded. Tuesday was a somewhat normal day at the office. Wednesday Alex and I went and met with his Eagle Councilor. Thursday I was supposed to work with a guy who was flying in from the East coast but his flight was delayed in Denver so I just went to the Temple. I spent Friday morning with him and then I worked late Friday afternoon. Friday night Alex called a few friends and talked them into going to the Priest/Laurel conference with him.Today I took it easy and fixed a few things around the house. Our kitchen sink has been flowing very slowly so I took it apart and found a rock in it. Weird. This afternoon Sarah had her piano concert. Some day I will figure out how to transfer my video's to the computer but for now you'll have to suffer with the fifteen second clips that I get from the camera. She did very well. I was proud watching her.

Last night I couldn't sleep. I laid awake all night and the whole time I was solving a problem I'm having at work. I actually came up with a very good solution but right now I'm dead tired. I think I'll be going to bed early except that Sarah is having a movie night at our house so I have ten teenagers in my house making a lot of noise. It also looks like Lisa has gone into cleaning mode and that usually means that I'll be up late. I have no idea why she get's these urges to start cleaning up cluttered corners and closets at 11:00 at night. As soon as Alex gets back from his Priest/Laurel conference I think I'm going to hit the sack.

Ah! Lisa and I are a LOT alike! I come fully awake at that hour and get my best work done.

I truly hope you get more rest and back to full health Fred. Sounds like your body is telling you something.....too much on your plate??

Great piano playing Sarah!

well ... she plays better than me!

you didn't include the fact that you almost lost your eldest, but that you are thrilled she is still alive and thriving ... albeit a little more grey than before :-)

What was I supposed to do? We were up with the party so I may as well put my time to good use and organize and clean right?

And Kira, I think that once you start practicing piano again you would surprise yourself with what you could do :D
